January 31, 2013 — Nordic Naturals recently introduced Vitamin D3 Gummies — the delicious, chewable, wild berry gummy that provides 1,000 I.U. of vitamin D in each serving and is sourced from cholecalciferol, the natural form of vitamin D preferred for optimal absorption. The pectin-based product is gelatin free and does not contain artificial coloring, flavoring, or preservatives.
Research shows that vitamin D performs a variety of functions in optimizing health. It promotes the body’s absorption of calcium and phosphorous, minerals that are critical for bone health. Vitamin D also supports the immune system, and the hormones that regulate mood and sleep. Experts recommend 1000 I.U. of vitamin D a day and each Nordic Naturals Vitamin D3 Gummy fulfills this recommendation — easily, naturally, and deliciously.
With this new product introduction, Nordic Naturals now offers three convenient vitamin D3 products: Nordic Vitamin D3 (120 soft gels), Vitamin D3 Vegan (1 oz liquid), and Vitamin D3 Gummies (60 gummies).
“With recent research suggesting that many Americans — both adults and children — are not getting enough of this crucial micronutrient due to either limited intake from food sources or from lack of sun exposure, the importance of vitamin D cannot be overlooked,” notes Keri Marshall, MS, ND, Nordic Naturals chief medical officer. “During the cold and dark winter months, I often see seasonal strain in my patients, especially regarding the immune and nervous systems that could be potentially relieved by supplementation of vitamin D. As a company, we have committed to making vitamin D3 available as a stand-alone vitamin supplement, as well as offering added vitamin D3 in many of our fish oil products to alleviate this deficiency. ”
